Stapled, pale gray wraps with black titles and drawing. This copy has some soiling and wear, including some scuffing on front wrap, but is still square and securely bound, a solid copy of this rather scarce booklet. This booklet was prepared as a general program for Lincoln Day celebrations, with readings and music. Copies could be ordered from P. J. Maveety and I. Garland Penn, Corresponding Secretaries of the Freedmen's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Penn was a well-known journalist, educator and Methodist leader. He co-edited The United Negro, His Problems and His Progress (1902). Margins illustrated with vignettes of African-Americans at work in field, home, and shop, in church, and in school. Songs, readings, and other activities to help celebrate a Lincoln Day and emancipation. Not in Work or Blockson.
